Brisbane, Australia (PressExposure) October 20, 2008 -- The developer of Integard for home PC's has released a professional version, a premium website filtering and content control solution, designed using the latest technology.
The home PC version of Integard was developed in 2006 and is one of the internet filters selected by the Australian Government as part of itâs âProtecting Australian Families Onlineâ initiative.
The corporate version of Integard can run on a server, or on the desktop, has increased flexibility in configuration, setting user and group profiles, remote administration and management. It also provides a customisable internet usage policy, warning and login pages.
Daniel Millerson, spokesperson for Race River said that most business owners and managers are well aware of the damage caused by computer viruses, spyware, worms and hackers. They invest in the necessary software and technical support to protect their information systems. However, fewer businesses understand the cost of lost productivity and resources as a result of their employeeâs personal usage of internet.
Various research shows that the cost of employee non-work related activities to American businesses is estimated to be more than $85 billion annually. The overall loss in productivity is estimated to be 30 to 40 percent worldwide.
âThe outlay for safeguarding business resources in comparison to cost of lost productivity is insignificant however, not many business owners and managers understand the magnitude of the lossesâ. Millerson continued.
The cost of implementing filtering software is as low as $15 per year per employee. Reducing one hour per year of lost productivity by installing a filter, will recover the full outlaid cost. This could be the fastest return on investment for businesses of any size.
The advanced filtering technology used in developing the home version of Integard has been extended and improved for the corporate version to meet the needs of businesses, schools and libraries.
